Rebecca from Massachusetts, USA
My name is Rebecca and I live in MA, USA. I I was diagnosed
with GT when I was a child. I am currently 14 years old.
When I was young up until I was 9 years old I was in the
hospital almost every 6 months for a blood transfusion.
Then in April of 2004 I started to volunteer on farms.
I fell in love with some goats that lived down the street
from my house. I would go over and help feed them and
milk them every night. Before I knew it I had my own goat.
I compete in goat shows and do quite well. I attended
2005 Nationals for a goat registry at the big E fair grounds
in western Mass. I came home with the herdsmanship award.
also attended the 2007 national show in Harrisonburg, Virginia
and came home with the youth intermediate reserve champion's
trophy. Even though I live with
GT I needed to find a hobby, something to have fun with and
keep my will to live high.
